How many trailers does one game need? If you ask us, Kingdom Hearts 3 doesn’t have enough, but this year it got three. One premiered during Sony’s press conference, one during Microsoft’s, and one during Square’s own — though in that case it was just a variant of the Sony version with a few extra clips mixed in. Wanna watch?
We’ve posted both relevant trailers below. The first revealed a world based around Frozen. With her ice powers, Elsa can explode a Heartless with a dead shot from 50 feet away — pretty boss, but she doesn’t look very confident about it. We not only saw lots of the Frozen world, but new footage from the other revealed worlds.
The other trailer confirmed the return of an old world. The Pirates of the Caribbean world from Kingdom Hearts 2 is back, and this time, it’s reenacting the events of Pirates 3. Wonder if it’ll include a scene where little Sora is staring up nervously at a noose. Sorry/not sorry.
Two generations removed from Playstation 2, a realistic world like Jack Sprarrow’s looks really great. Wish we could say the same for the storyline of Pirates 3, but in theory, many of the movie’s events should be more fun to play than to watch. We also got to see more of the other worlds in this trailer (this is the most we’ve seen of the Hercules world to date), and we also got some pretty cool news hardware-wise….
This sweet new Playstation 4 has Kingdom Hearts branding and comes packed with the entire KH saga: the remastered versions of Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and their spinoffs, plus 3. It’ll be available the day Kingdom Hearts 3 is released: January 29, 2019.
